John opened his doors in 2011 and now, a short 8 years later, has some 250 trucks on the road serving clients across 2 states. John has plans to go national and has even given thought to international expansion.
John has a real people focus. His mission is to help others maximize their careers and live fulfilling, comfortable lives. His quest is to create 99 millionaires within his own business, a project he is already making significant progress on.
He is the author of 3 books, titled “The Secret to Real Wealth”, “Creating 99 Millionaires” and “Values First. Principle Driven Leadership.”
During this chat, we covered:
- the early days John spent working out of the back of his car
- saving money
- why plumbing should be your first career choice and not your plan B
- some of the early marketing strategies John used, how he got work and how he organised his day
- growing a business, without using debt or financing
- why he makes himself so accessible including having his own mobile phone number on the company website (rooterhero.com) and why it’s on the back of every business card, something very rare for a company as large as John now runs
- the reason he teaches finance to his employees
- why John believes the future of trades is in technology, and, as always,
- much more
